The food was INCREDIBLE. Our whole family absolutely loved the Banquet options, and each dish was so delicious and cooked to perfection. 100% would recommend and will definitely go again.

I tried the chicken tikka. Was cooked to perfection and tasted excellent. Next was the Malai Kofta with garlic Nan bread. It certainly hit the right spot that’s for sure. Will support this local business.

We walked past this upstairs restaurant and decided to go Indian tonight. What a thrill it was. The food was simply outstanding...one of the best Indian meals we have eaten outside of Asia. Choices are standard Indian, but we thought the beef vindaloo and Kadhai...prawns particularly excellent. Definitely return next trip to Canberra.More

We booked early so the service was very good. The food was excellent and ample portions. Excellent value for money.

I chose this based on previous reviews but my recent experience was extremely disappointing. We were a family of 4, had to wait for our order to be taken, then wait a very long time for just one starter and then wait even longer for...our mains. When the food finally arrived they had not even bothered to wipe the under-surface of the serving dishes, which left black stains all over the white tablecloth. The chicken pieces in the butter chicken were huge, hadn't even been chopped up. All the curry portions were very small, including the naan bread which had been cut up into ridiculously small portions so that one was forced to order more. All the curries tasted very mediocre and below par. Overall pretty disappointing, won’t bother going back.More

Had the standard takeaway dinner for two. Less dollars did not equate to less flavour. Really good Indian food from start to finish. Takeaway with some love in it.

The food was really good. A. It understaffed and a bit of a shopping centre vibe, but absolutely no complaint about the food.

I am a regular reviewer. I consider myself to be fair but objective. I note fairly that most of the reviews give good feedback. But if you accept a booking that includes 6 adults and 6 children and it is an early booking that is...the restaurant is less than half full you want to make sure that a the food you order is all delivered and you don't have to chase it up and on a Saturday night you say that your bar is not stocked with one but more of your spirits is not available i.e. out of stock that the real reason is you want to get people out of the restaurant that you don't take the booking. You rushed the missing dishes it was substandard for What is supposed to be a good restaurant and you think peoe are naive to believe your out of stock. This restraunt leaves me no option than to not recommend it either in this forum or the others I write to and to word of mouth which spreads well especially being a heavy public service element to Canberra. The service industry is reliant on repeat business and given the climate of recent times and the many options that are available this family all know return or recommend tour businessMore

We stumbled across Jewel of India quite by accident and had a really good Indian meal. Its nicely appointed and the staff are friendly, and you get most of the items you'd expect on a suburban Indian restaurant menu. I couldn't fault the food and...the serves were a good size. The waitress warned me the vindaloo was quite spicy when I ordered and I was delighted to discover she was right. Will definitely return when next in CanberraMore
